For skeletal discrepancies beyond orthodontic treatment

Elleven Dental

Jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) can be a necessary treatment for those with a skeletal discrepancy outside of the boundaries of conventional orthodontics.

Best Jaw Surgeons In London

Some patients may require jaw surgery in order to correct the position of the teeth and provide a functioning bite. The supporting bones of the jaws must be in the correct position.

If this is not the case, orthodontics alone will not correct the bite. Surgery will be required to move the jaws into the proper position so the teeth then meet correctly. Patients seek jaw surgery at our Harley Street practice for a number of reasons, including;

  • Difficulty in eating and speaking
  • Disproportionately large upper or lower jaws
  • Long face
  • Facial asymmetries & Chin abnormalities.
Our team - Elleven Dental

Thankfully, with elleven Dental Wellness, this doesn’t have to be a complex operation. We’re friends with the best jaw surgeons, and are used to working in close collaboration to get optimum results for our shared patients.

Book a consultation with Dr. Shivani Patel to discuss your jaw surgery requirements. She is trained as an orthodontist to consultant level and has a lot of experience in these multidisciplinary cases.

At elleven Dental Wellness, we always work in the best interest of the patient. It is important to understand that with jaw surgery you may experience some side effects, whether you are having class 1, 2 or 3 surgery.

You will have some swelling and bruising after the operation. This will rapidly begin to subside over the first 2-3 weeks. For operations on the lower jaw, it is fairly common to have some numbness of the lower lip. In a very small number of cases, a residual area of numbness may remain. This does not affect the movement of the lips, only the feeling in it, in a similar way to an injection at the dentist. After the operation, you will have to take it easy for 2-3 weeks. You should therefore expect to be off college or work for at least that length of time.

Frequently Asked Questions

If the jaws are to be moved into the correct position, it is important your teeth are moved so that they meet properly after surgery.

Fixed braces are used prior to jaw surgery because they permit the most accurate positioning of the teeth prior to the operation.

No, they remain in position during and after the operation for a number of months. During the operation they help the oral surgeon position the jaws correctly. After the operation they help the orthodontist fine tune the bite with elastics.

The majority of operations will be done from inside your mouth.

This varies between 2-5 days.

It usually takes 2- 2 1/2 years, but will vary on how severe your case is. Failed or cancelled appointments or repeated breakages will add to the overall treatment time.
